Hey contenders! Your favorite New York City boxing coach and blogger is here. Thanks for dropping by my blog. Here’s a quick video that I put together that shows how to do shadow boxing for beginners. I also created this video for experienced boxers who might find shadow boxing boring and they’re just looking for creative ways to either improve their boxing technique or just change up their training routine.
I’m not sure how most boxing coaches and trainers feel about the sport today, but to me, shadow boxing almost seems like a lost art. When it comes to me training my clients, and as they advanced in their boxing technique, I always implement a considerable amount of time dedicated to shadow boxing. You can perform shadowboxing drills just about anywhere, including within the comfort of your own home. Here are a few reasons shadow boxing is crucial in learning how to box or improving your skills:
- It’s a great extension to warm up the targeted muscles you will be utilizing in your boxing sessions.
- It’s beneficial for fighters to visualize the opponent in front of you.
- Awesome for improving your overall technique, like correcting bad habits in boxing such as keeping your hands down, not tucking your chin or squaring up in your stance.
- It’s an incredible way to not only improve as a fighter, but it also makes as an awesome cardio workout!
I hope that you find this video helpful in your training. Let me know what you think. I’d love to read your comments!
